Clemson University confirmed Tuesday that all six students studying in Japan are safe after the 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck the northeast part of the country.

Clemson’s Office of Abroad Global Engagement contacted the students immediately after learning about the earthquake. The university also asked students to get in touch with their family and friends.

On Tuesday, tsunami warnings were lifted in Japan. The warnings were in effect for the same area devastated by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami, which killed 18,000 people and destroyed a nuclear power plant.
